Main house has large split level living room and Dining area, Large extended verandah, and new terrace finished in cut stone, in the main house we have 2 large Master Suites and then via the steps outside lead on to a separate Garden Suite downstairs. Bayhill House has just currently been through a $150,000 investment which now includes a large Infinity Pool with million dollar views, Extended Terrace, Dining Gazebo and Upgraded En-Suites and New Air Con in all the bedrooms. Most of the Art in the house has been painted by my wife Pamela. We do automatic bookings and payment through Paypal via our website www.bayhillhouse.com
About Bayhill House:
Bayhill House sits in a commanding position near the highest point of Frigate Bay, on the picturesque island of St Kitts overlooking both the Caribbean and the Atlantic Oceans. Basseterre is 4 miles away, as is the Robert Bradshaw International Airport. St Kitts has many wonderful beaches which can be found all over the island, but the nearest is less than 1/2 a mile away.
Bayhill House was built for & by the British Consulate of St Kitts, who lovingly designed the current layout. The house is privately owned and is available for a select few each year

Pamela Reed purchased this villa in 2005
We chose Bayhill on its location and the views as well as the potential the house offers with 2 Master Suites upstairs and separate Garden Suite downstairs as well as the one bedroom apartment. As the British Consulate built it for himself it's a really great place to entertain.
Its mature gardens and sea breezes also played a major part of why we chose Bayhill House. The potential to build the pool was realised in November 2012 when the extended terrace and infinity pool and Gazebo was finished and benefits from local cut stone. Bayhill also now benefits from large entertaining space outside with BBQ, Shower area, large sun deck.
Three couples stayed at Bayhill House for a week in June and it was wonderful. The photos that are on this site really do not do justice to the property. It is magnificent. There are a couple of things I think it's worth sharing since I had several concerns about the villa before we got there that turned out to be groundless.
First, there are AC units in the bedrooms but not in the rest of the villa. We had this arrangement once before in Cozumel and the AC units were not up to the task of cooling the place. That was not a problem at Bayhill. The AC units are new and powerful. The house is at the top of a ridge and we got a continuous sea breeze that was most pleasant. Related to that, we did not see a mosquito or other bug the whole week. The mosquito nets over the bed were never used. Quaint but not a concern. However, the villa is a mile or so from anywhere and we rented a car to get around. The driving on the left part took some getting used to but my main warning is that the roads are ridiculously steep. The villa is on Fort Tyson Rise which is so steep that the one time we had a cab it refused to go up. I bought a map for my Garmin, which was a life saver. Turn by turn directions were very useful. However, it doesn't realize how steep some of the roads are. Don't turn right and go up over the hill on Ft Tyson Rise (which is the most direct route to Basseterre). That road is really dangerous.
An unusual aspect of the property is that the third bedroom is on a lower level and you cannot get to or from it to the rest of the house. You need to walk up the side of the property and come in the front door. The couple who got that room said they were in "the fortress of solitude."
The pool was very nice and the kitchen was full service, nice pots and pans, utensils, etc. We had all of our breakfasts and some of our lunches at the villa. That was a real time and money saver.
The house was everything the pictures said it would be. Beautifully accommodating inside and out. We Definately enjoyed the infinity pool and the beautiful views it has to offer. We were busy almost everyday, boating, snorkling,zip lining, and exploring the island. Relaxing at the pool with lively conversation on what transpired each day was incredible with the view of Nevis in the background. The week flew by way too fast, but the six of us enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you Pamela for providing such an accommodating and breathtakingly beautiful local.
The house is extraordinary, I think this much is obvious. But it gets better. The back veranda not only offers stunning views, but the cool breeze and relatively secluded position on the hill make for the ultimate relaxation experience. The house is within a mile or two of all the action that St. Kitts has to offer (beaches, snorkeling, restaurants, etc.), but the temptation to stay and lounge at the house was really overwhelming at times. My niece and nephew were completely stoked by the pool, also. Pretty sure we left some extra pool toys behind for the next guest, so enjoy that :-)
The owner of the property was very responsive with questions; all of my emails were answered within a couple of hours. Also, property management was great - they picked us up at the airport and helped us find a place to order a late-night dinner when we got in.
My family and I usually aren't into vacationing to the same place twice, but I think we could probably make an exception to that rule here. So what are you waiting for? =)
From the moment we arrived we knew we were in a truly wonderful location. The views from the balcony are magnificent-look one way to the Atlantic Ocean and the other to the Caribbean Sea.
The inside of the house is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed. Outside the property are beautifully tended gardens and the wonderful infinity pool. There are plenty of sun beds and chairs and a great barbeque.
St Kitts is a very laid-back Island and there are plenty of beautiful beaches and good restaurants a short drive away. Our party made use of the golf course just down the hill at the Marriott Hotel.
We very much loved our stay and would recommend to anyone searching for a very special holiday
We had a wonderful relaxing week in this stunning villa. The views are incredible and the location is perfect for access to beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants and as a base for exploring the island. The villa has everything you need and more and is very comfortable. The gardens are really pretty and the infinity pool area is paradise. Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday home.
Beautiul home with vibrant colors inside and out, fantastic views of the Carribean and Nevis, wonderful ocean breezes. A great setting for relaxing and enjoying friends. Located near great restaurants, especially La Belle Vie, a wonderful French restaurant just down the hill from the villa, plus the Steakhouse at the Marriott, and a bit farther away is Ottleys Plantation, a great restaurant in a beautiful garden setting. A truly enjoyable week for three couples starved for sunlight and warmth!
